Nakatutok ang tema ng forum sa poverty alleviation efforts ng China at pagbusisi sa China-Philippines cooperation sa capacity building para sa poverty reduction.
“China has solved its poverty problem 10 years ahead of the target of the United Nations. Congratulations, China, and I love China, because I have visited China only a few months ago and I have seen with my own eyes how China has developed into really an economic power,” ani Gadon.
Aniya, ang China “has invaded the whole world through commerce” at pinuri ang China sa pagtulong sa maraming bansa “through projects and transfer technology… So long live China.”
